ARUNDEL — A small number of voters in Arundel narrowly approved a state bond on Tuesday.

Just 7 percent of registered voters in Arundel turned out to vote Tuesday, with 246 residents casting their ballots.

Of them, 145 voted in favor of a $50 million state bond passed in the 127th Legislature. 

Of that, $45 million would be put toward investments in infrastructure research and development, and to expand employment and preserve Maine jobs. The remaining $5 million would go toward creating jobs and economic growth through investment in small businesses.

Another 101 voters opposed the measure.

Selectman Thomas Danylik won another term on the Board of Selectman. He ran uncontested for the three-year term and was voted in with an overwhelming 210 votes.

MaryBeth Luce, who ran uncontested for Regional School Unit 21 director — which also has a three-year term — received a favorable 207 votes.

Arundel also holds its annual Town Meeting tonight, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mildred L. Day School Gym, 600 Limerick Road.
 
On the ballot are multiple land use ordinance amendments, such as those pertaining to medical marijuana caregiver production facilities and shoreland zoning and the possible purchase of land, in the amount of $250,000, for a new Town Hall.
